MORRISVILLE, NC, Nov. 3, 2016 – To mark Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month in November, Worldwide Clinical Trials (www.worldwide.com) will host a webinar, titled “Alzheimer’s Disease Clinical Trials: Improving Screen Failure and Recruitment Rates,” on Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016 at 11 a.m. E.T.
Jeffrey Zucker, Worldwide’s Vice President of Feasibility and Recruitment Optimization, will be leading the hour-long webinar, which will discuss the main factors that contribute to failure in Alzheimer’s trials, including poor target engagement and the potential inclusion of participants who may not be appropriate, given the rationale for the therapeutic intervention.
“With more than five million Americans affected by Alzheimer’s, the need for successful clinical trials and drug development is more crucial than ever,” said Zucker. “In recognition of Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, this interactive discussion will look at the historical reasons for screen failure rate, the challenges of engaging and recruiting patients in all stages of Alzheimer’s disease, and considering recent efforts to streamline enrollment in these trials, as well as the unique properties of recently introduced investigational products.”
Zucker will be joined for the webinar discussion by several of his Worldwide colleagues, including Tom Babic, M.D., Vice President, Neuroscience, and Barbara Zupancic, Director, Global Patient Recruitment and Retention.
